Trying out vlink and vasm

If you are a FreeBSD user and want to try out vlink and vasm then continue reading.

The well known Amiga assembler vasm has been in the FreeBSD ports tree for some time now. I have taken the task to maintain the port and keep it up to date. It is lacking a bit behind the upstream version (1.7e).

I would be very happy to have feedback so I can improve the port and give the users the best possible experience. Please try it out on real Amiga programs/code.

I have also created a new port of the well known linker, vlink. It has not been accepted for submission yet but it can be found in the bugzilla system. I would be happy to receive feedback on this port too.

Oh, you were the one who did it? Tak skal du have!

Although it is quite easy to build vasm or vlink, it is always nice to have an easily installable port package of it. Unfortunately I have no machine running with FreeBSD. I'm developing under NetBSD most of the time.

Du bist herzlich willkommen. So you are the author I assume ?

It is easy to build, true. Having it in the ports tree is more like quality assurance. I use FreeBSD for server stuff etc. and as a user I know the software from the ports tree is high quality, easy to install, and I don't need to worry about virus and such (all submission has been through a review and are open to the public).

NetBSD ... hmmm .. Maybe I should also submit it to pkgsrc
